20BFFL: Beyonce & Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce may seem like unlikely pair but the two absolutely adore each other and have been the best of friends for years. According to E!News, Gwyneth and her then husband, Chris Martin, met Bey and Jay-Z at a benefit in New York City. She spoke about how

they struck up a friendship while she was on The Ellen Show. "We just kind of hooked up and became really close," she told Ellen. "And they're incredible people. They're very, very kind, generous, good good people."

Gwyneth is the only one declaring their love, either. Bey told Harper's Bazaar of Gwyneth: "She pushes her boundaries all the time. You go to her house and she makes you feel like you never want to go home. She is what I strive to be one day."

They’ve been fixtures at each other’s prospective concerts, often cheering and dancing in the first row. The couples have been known to travel the globe together, going on double date vacations. Even when Gwyneth and Chris went through a "Conscious Uncoupling”, their friendship with Beyonce and Jay-Z endured. The exes have remained friendly and they all very much still enjoy spending quality time together.
